Modern traditions have their perks, whether you’re keen on watching holiday movies or driving around town to check out neighbors’ impressive Christmas light displays. There’s something truly magical, though, about embracing a timeless tradition, and one old-fashioned holiday market in Michigan will sweep you back to a simpler era. We can’t imagine a more marvelous way to embrace the spirit of the season.
ChristKindlMarkt at the Frankenmuth Farmers Market is held on weekends from late November through the second week of December. It sits along North Main Street in the picturesque town of Frankenmuth.
While you might have visited the farmers market itself during typical times, there’s nothing quite like a visit to the holiday market. After all, ChristKindlMarkt offers a sense of European-inspired charm that’s hard to beat.
This Frankenmuth gem is meant to resemble a German holiday market, keeping in line with the town’s Bavarian heritage. There’s a real sense of warmth, community, and cheer throughout the area.
As you stroll, you’ll come across upwards of 40 vendors and all sorts of impressive artisans. From hot cocoa to sweet holiday treats and everything in between, there’s something here to keep everyone feeling joyful.
This festive bazaar is free to visit and offers guests an opportunity to experience genuine old-world charm in an otherwise stressful world. Step away from the hustle and bustle of the holidays as you venture through.
If you’re hoping to finish up your holiday shopping, you’ve certainly come to the right place. From handicrafts to apparel to one-of-a-kind art pieces, you’ll find something at ChristKindlMarkt for everyone on your list.
When you’re done exploring the market, be sure to walk through downtown Frankenmuth or check out Bronner’s Christmas Wonderland for even more holiday glee. There’s a magical vibe throughout town.
As you make plans for the most wonderful time of the year, be sure to keep the ChristKindlMarket in Frankenmuth atop your itinerary. You’ll be walking (and shopping) in a winter wonderland in no time.
